FALLS CHURCH, USA: CSC a global provider in next-generation IT services and solutions, has announced a new opportunity for clients to accelerate their adoption of cloud solutions with the SAP HANA platform.
Working with SAP and in collaboration with CSC's global consulting practice and applications modernization partnership with HCL Technologies, CSC will develop a broad set of cloud solutions.
A company release said that these solutions are designed to help companies quickly and easily move to the cloud to gain new insights, engage customers and partners in new ways, and help unleash new operating models that can drive profitability and advantage.
The initial market focus will be on banking, engineering, construction and operations, and public sector social services solutions, with other industries expected to follow.
CSC will offer an enhanced range of SAP solution-enabled private cloud and hybrid cloud platforms including SAP HANA, facilitated by CSC's ServiceMesh Agility Platform, to enable simplification, standardization, upgrade and migration of SAP solutions.
It is anticipated that clients will benefit from the latest technologies, including SAP HANA, supported by a range of leading third-party landscape-optimization tools, the company said.
For customers using SAP solutions, CSC will deliver a full range of cloud capabilities that is planned to include:
- Rapidly deployable SAP-centric industry solutions that can be assembled to order, combining business content from CSC and SAP;
- Accelerated build-out of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) portfolio capabilities, particularly for SuccessFactors, Ariba and hybris solutions; and
- Planned introduction of CSC Cloud solutions - powered by Hitachi Data Systems - for SAP HANA.
Nick Mayes, research director at leading analyst firm Pierre Audoin Consultants, said: "The move towards more agile cloud-based delivery models will be one of the biggest challenges for clients in the next five years. We believe that many will look to leverage the experience of external services providers like CSC to help manage the risk in this transition and to fully exploit emerging cloud opportunities."
CSC and SAP have cooperated to define a new global strategy for their banking software and services offerings that is intended to help reduce the risk, implementation time, and cost of modernizing business processes and IT environments.
Starting with deposits and loans leveraging SAP's world-class solutions, the initial solution aimed at the banking industry will be based on the CSC Cloud and orchestrated cloud management provided by the ServiceMesh Agility Platform.
